Peace Wreath


This is Anja again. I have a very simple card for you today. I'm still busy at work, coming home late and lacking time for crafting. Happily things slow down in October, so I'll have more free time.

Sometimes also a simple design can be useful, especially if we have to make a lot of cards and we don't have enough time. So this is quite a simple card to make.

For this project  used:
- Cottage Cutz dies (Grapevine Wreath w/ Bird, Love Peace & Joy),
- Distress Oxides (Antique Linen, Squeezed Lemonade, Faded Jeans, Black Soot),
- white card base (11x11 cm),
- white card stock for die cuts,
- water color paper for background (10x10 cm),
- water spritzer,
- heat gun.

First I made the background. I used Distress Oxides this time and blended the three colors together. I went from light to darker color around the edge of the paper.

The I spritzed some water on top and dried it with the heat gun.
I also used Distress Oxides around the edges of the card base. 

Then I die cut the wreath and the sentiment. I again used Distress Oxides around the edges.

When I had everything colored, I glued the elements on top of the card base.

And my card was finished.

Before I go I want to invite you also on The Scrapping Cottage website to check all the new goodies in the store. Can't wait to try it out.

Have a nice Sunday and see you again next week.

Your card may be simple, as you said, but it is definitely stunning! I love the yellow inside the wreath.
